Had to do some emergency breaking today

I am going into my 3rd season with a travel trailer and until today have not had to do any emergency breaking. On my way home from Savannah, GA I came upon an area where traffic was merging onto the interstate while some wanted to get off and people practically came to a stop. I had to jump on the breaks pretty hard and could hear and feel the truck anti-locks kicking in. I heard a bit of a squeal from what I guess was the trailer tires. But everything stayed in line and actually slowed down much quicker than I would have expected. I now have a little more confidence in the breaks on these things.

Haven't had to do a panic stop yet. Its one of those things that you hope to never do. And yes, one always wonders if everything works the way it was designed to. Glad your rig handled it nicely, now if we can just teach the people to drive.
